Which restaurant in nyc or nearby serves great pork chops?

Love pork chops but any pork dish will be appreciated. Farm to table is a plus.

  1. I'm partial to the pork chops and mofongo at La Fonda Boricua (E Harlem)

        I second the Vinegar Hill House pork chop recommendation, it was fantastic.

          The chops at VHH were unlike anything called a "pork chop," that I've ever eaten. Simply amazing.

      1. Two Toms - 3rd Ave, Brooklyn bet President and Union. Hands down.

          I highly second Two Toms both for the price, size and taste of their pork chops. Beware that this is not a high end establishment but more of a family run, relaxedtype of place. It's great.

          Another place with good chops but more expensive is Little Owl. in a nicer, smaller setting.

          And of course the Bo Ssam at Momofuku is one amazinf hunk of pork butt.

          1. re: roze

            I think the pork chop at Two Toms is like a perfect example of some local foodie legend that simply doesn't withstand examination. When I finally had one last year after living in Brooklyn for almost 30 years, I was shocked. I couldn't believe it. It was totally devoid of flavor -- and something strange must have done to get it to be that moist when it was completely overcooked.

            This is the kind of place that's fun to go to because it makes you feel like you're a local in the know, rather than some lemming going to some cool place. But for food, it's better to go to real restaurants. (I think the pork chop at Vinegar Hill House is exceptional.)

        2. I thought Little Owl had fantastic pork chops

            Mine has arrived overcooked, though. :( I thought Babbo's version was better.

              Babbo's pork chop is, by far, the best I ever had. A phenomenal dish. So good I asked the server to pack the bone to take home with me.

                  Jorel, what did you take the bone home for? Stock? I'm so curious.

            2. Bocca Di Bacco on 9th Av has an outstanding pork chop entree.
